The Chesterfield County Public Library will host the Chesterfield Maker Expo 2016 – a family-friendly event that will include a variety of makers. The vendors will create or demonstrate everything from robots to printmaking, coding to crafts. Maker Expo is on Saturday, June 4, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Central Library, 9501 Lori Rd.

The library’s 3D printers and other high-tech equipment will be part of the Expo. The technology is part of the library’s “makerspace” – a creative arealocated in the Central Library. The space provides hands-on opportunities for collaboration, creating, inventing, and learning.

Middle and high school students have used the makerspace to build mechanical hands, some of which were donated to children in need of prosthetic limbs.

CCPL programs are brought to you with generous support from the Friends of the Chesterfield County Public Library.
